I'm thinking a 70's era Oldsmobile Cutlass Surpreme.

Nice car. The picture's pretty dark, but when I applied some gamma correction,it looks a lot like a '78 or '79 Pontiac Grand Prix, or maybe a Le Mans. By the way, how do you like your Olympus C4040Z?

with gamma correction i think fields get washed out......sun was very harsh and hard to get best out of shot

was taken last year on c4040 what is a great little camera

am now running a e-300 as well, my c4040 is going to spend rest of its life in glovebox of the car or on a kite, as i have just got most of the kit for kite aerial photography



the car is a 1987 pontiac grand prix. 305 cubic inch by the way, 49000 gunine miles and it very good shape , just needing a paint job as 2 years of standing under trees didnt help

I used gamma correction to be able to see more of the car's details - I didn't mean it to be a critique of your picture.

These cars didn't change in appearance very much from when they were introduced in the late '70's. Yours looks very nice.

Is that the Dark Matalic Brown lower body Champaign upper body? I had an "84" in that scheme.

toshi43...........its ok dude.....i see what u did so it could be seen better

as far as im aware its one of the last ones made,it arrived here in england in 88 so is registered as a 88, but is actualy 87

it as UK spec lights with yellow indictors not flashing red..........ones i have seen in pics from USA have a pontiac badge in the middle of lights.(i think) all lights need converting to meet UK standard as we also drive on different side of the road

thatsanicepicture2...........all black mate with cream pinstripe and half vinyl roof, its brougham version.....pretty plush inside electric seat, windows, roof, air-con.....the works LOL

air-con is discontected and its Catalitic converter been replaced with straight pipe as its not required on a car of that year over here.



project for this coming year is to get it painted......i done graphics work for a company who are gonna paint it as payment........and would love to replace exhaust with twin stainless system.....same bloke will bend and sort out that too for ongoing work :-)

i got more pics kicking about and one i just thought of will go in landscape section so watch for that

Nice, i had an 82 that looked the same. I had it in black cherry with T-tops, and a 350 chevy pushin 325 hp and a shift kit in the tranny. It was funny to see a big car like this take on stock mustangs. I miss that car. Oh and they have a nice front end so take some front pics or on a 45 degree. Must feel weird to drive left side steering for you.
